How We Give
At Vulcan Spinners, we're committed to improving the lives of others. That's why we give 10% of our profits to charity. We've partnered with award-winning non-profits that are looking to create a long-term, sustainable impact.
We've partnered with the Kids in Need Foundation to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need. Last year, the Kids In Need Foundation helped 154,000 teachers and over 4.8 million students.
We've also partnered with an amazing NGO called Room to Read, which focuses on literacy and gender equality in education. Room to Read has impacted over 8 million children by constructing more than 1,700 schools, publishing 882 new children’s book titles in 27 local languages, and reaching over 25,000 girls through their Girls’ Education program.
Vulcan Spinners is proud to be a partnered with Doctors Without Borders. Every year, Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) provides emergency medical care to millions of people caught in crises in more than 60 countries around the world. MSF provides assistance when catastrophic events—such as armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, or natural disasters—overwhelm local health systems. MSF also assists people who face discrimination or neglect from their local health systems or when populations are otherwise excluded from health care.
CLEAN WATER INITIATIVES
We've partnered with 2 amazing non-profits determined to deliver clean water to the 1.8 billion people who don't have it.
Water For People empowers community members and service providers to invest in the long-term solutions and systems that are right for them. They provide clean water to over 4 million people in 9 countries. WaterAid enables the world's poorest people to gain access to clean water and sanitation. They provide safe, clean water to over 3 million people per year.
SERVICES FOR THE HOMELESS
Vulcan Spinners is based in San Francisco, and the San Francisco Chronicle got it right when it wrote "On one point we must all agree: The level and pervasiveness of homelessness in San Francisco is a disgrace. It is simply not acceptable to allow people to stay in the squalor of tent encampments or sleep in doorways, parks and freeway underpasses without attention to the underlying issues that prevent them from attaining shelter and stability in their lives." We've partnered with the National Alliance to End Homelessness, a leading voice on the issue of homelessness. The Alliance analyzes policy, develops pragmatic and cost-effective policy solutions, and much more.
